We thought it was time for a fun new post every week. In the Royal Update one of us updates you about our personal life, bookish news, what we’re reading, watching and listening to and anything else that might apply to this post. We thought it would be fun to share a bit more about our personal lives and hope you think so too!
As you all know Corona is creating a crazy and scary situation around the world. Here in the Netherlands we’re not completely locked down but almost everything is closed as off last night. I’m in self isolation after coming into contact with someone who now has Corona. At the moment I’m feeling good but I don’t want to spread it so I’m staying home just in case.
The last weeks I haven’t been doing that much, but I did get back into competing with my horse. We participated in two competitions and brought home some prizes! I had a lot of fun and we’re becoming a great team together. For now we’re just going to train until we can compete again.
I also had my birthday a little less than 2 weeks ago! March 5th I turned 30. I can’t believe I actually have to type that haha. No longer in my twenties, but feeling the same haha. I had to go to school all day but I did bring cake so it was a bit festive. Luckily I already decided that I’m going to celebrate my birthday this summer with a party in the garden.
I hadn’t heard of The Extraodinaries by TJ Klune yet but I did hear of TJ Klune. This author was already on my wishlist so I’m glad I get to read something of theirs now. The synopsis sounds like a lot of fun and right up my alley!
Girl, Serpent, Thorn has such a gorgeous cover!! This Persian inspired fantasy has a pretty cool synopsis. A girl poisonous to the touch, hopefully she’s a better character than Julliette ;). The authors first novel got some high praise so I have high hopes!
And lastly I got More Than Just a Pretty Face. I think it will be awhile before I’ll read this as it won’t release until this summer. But this rom com sounds like a perfect summer read. From the synopsis I’m already pretty sure what’s going to happen but the ride is what’s important!
I haven’t been reading that much unfortunately. But that will probably change soon ;). I did listen to a couple of audiobooks and I’m still in the middle of some other books. Yesterday I finished A Royal Witch, and after once again listening to Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone last week I’m currently listening to the Chamber of Secrets. I’m also still reading Elantris and I just started reading Ruthless Gods. My immediate TBR consists of Wildcard, Vengeful, and either Chain of Gold or House of Earth and Blood.
I’ve only got one piece of news this time! It does sounds pretty cool though, Red Rising at Evil Hogwarts!! Is it Summer 2021 yet?!
Two of the Pops I ordered arrived last week! And look at these beauties <3. As you hopefully know, I adore To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and I’m so happy I now own a Lara Jean and Peter K Pop.
I’ve been isolated for two days and I’ve already bingewatched a lot haha. First I had to watch season 3 of Elite. I adore this series and I’m so sad the next two season will be with a whole new cast. These characters own my heart and I hope we get to see these actors in something else. After finishing Elite I started watching On My Block. And why is no one talking about this gem of a show?! I watched all three seasons this weekend and I truly hope we’ll get a fourth season. This show is brilliant! Super funny but also quite emotional <3
After finally watching The Princess and the Frog I have been listening to the soundtrack non stop! This movie is amazing and I can’t believe it took me this long to watch it. The soundtrack is top notch, with Almost There and Dig a Little Deeper as my favorites <3
